The natural world (with apologies to "The Hitchhikers' Guide To The Galaxy"), is big. Really big. I mean, you may think it there are a lot of choices in the garden center, but that's nothing compared the whole natural world...
The current exhibition at the Dark Room gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont tries to embrace it all. From the smallest anatomical detail to the vastness of space, it's all fair game. That gives artists a lot of scope of course, and the quality of the work shows that.
I'm very lucky to have one of my images "Complexus" selected for the show, which is on display in the gallery from June 25th through July 19th
Images were selected by juror Dan Burkholder - one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990’s. Originating the digital-negative process in 1992, Burkholder helped open doors for black and white photographers interested in moving into the new electronic technologies. His award-winning book, Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing, is regarded as the most authoritative work in the field. Dan has taught classes and workshops at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the lnternational Center of Photography in New York, the University of Texas at San Antonio, the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego and others.
